Markets and Odds

There is certainly plenty to bet on when you join up at 888sport. A whole variety of sports are available for you to make selections on. All the top sports are covered, each of them having their own section. Finding what you want to bet on isn’t a problem at all (more about navigation of the site later), it’s just a question of where do you start really.

It’s not just the main sporting events that you can place bets on at 888sport. Also you can place bets on events and teams you’ve probably never heard of. Mika FC may not be familiar to you but sooner or later this Armenian Premier League side might become your best friends if they can get a few good wins for you.

There’s action from all over the world at 888sport, that guarantees plenty of matches to bet on all day and night. Lots of European action throughout the day then bet on American sports such as Basketball, Baseball, Ice Hockey and American Football to keep you interested during the late evening and early hours. Horse racing fans can look forward to races from around the world including the latest action from South Africa and France.

It’s not all about win-draw-win of course. You can bet on just about everything at 888sport. You can bet on the total number of goals in the first half, whether the next delivery will be a no-ball or who’ll score the next try for England. All ideal ways of making a profit and not having to predict the overall result, so if you’re not sure about that you’ve still got lots of chances to get wins.

When it comes to odds, 888sport really do offer some excellent ones to their customers. Look out for the special offers on the site. This includes daily price boosts in the horse racing section of the 888sport site.

You’re bound to be wanting to place bets on the top events but how about something a little bit out of the ordinary? With such a wide range of bets available on the site, there are plenty that aren’t the first you’ll be thinking of when logging in.

Bets that might not be the first to come into your head include:

  • Who will win the World Chess Championship?
  • What colour underpants will Gary Lineker be wearing on the first ‘Match of the Day’ of the 2016-17 season?

Betting on Linker’s underwear might sound daft, hey it is daft but making a profit isn’t!  If you want to place some ante-post bets then there are plenty for you at 888sport. All the major events are covered so try and work out who’s going to win sometime in the future and get a great price on it.

Live Betting

Placing ante-post bets can be profitable but there’s that long wait isn’t there? For more instant results try out the live betting at 888sport. There’s certainly plenty of it on offer at this site. Whatever the time of day you’ll have plenty of events to choose from all with plenty of markets and odds continually fluctuating as the game progresses.

That’s the great thing about following a game live. The odds for the 22nd minute of a game might be totally different from those a minute ago thanks to that goal that’s just been scored. Sports such as football, tennis, basketball and rugby union/league all receive excellent coverage on the site.

Live Streaming

Following the action on 88sport as it happens is a great experience but actually seeing what you’re betting on is even better. Betting and watching sport at the same time, now that’s an unmissable combination. At 888sport you can watch plenty of live sporting action including the Bundesliga, EuroLeague basketball and KHL Ice Hockey.

888sport also show live racing from the UK and Ireland, you simply need to have a bet of £1 or 50p each way to be able to watch the race.

For all sports you can just check out the live calendar to see what’s lined up. You can also just look out for the TV symbol next to an event. Aside from the horse racing, to be able to watch the action you simply need to have some cash in your account or have placed at least £1 on any event in the past 24 hours, not the hardest qualification. Then hope for some luck to flow your way as 888sport say it’s just a case of “BetWatchWin!”

888 Sport Promotions

There are plenty of promotions available at 888sport. They are all listed on one page so that’s really helpful and it’s certainly a page you’ll want to be making regular visits to when you log in.

Horse Racing

The Best Odds Guaranteed offer is available along with some good horse racing promotions on the site that can be profitable.

Isn’t it frustrating when the favourite you were sure was going to win gets beaten? Not just beaten by the second or third favourite though but a total no-hoper. If an outsider priced at least 20/1 beats the favourite you’ve backed into second then you receive your stake back as a free bet.

This goes up to £25 in what 888sport lovingly called their Donkey Kong’d promotion and the minimum stake is £5 on a win or each-way bet. But the free bet amount received isn’t included in any return you’re lucky enough to get from your free bet.

Weekly Punting Competition

Each week on the site there’s £2000 worth of free bets available to be won in their weekly Punting competition with a top prize of £888. Simply get some big wins and see how high you can climb up the leaderboard with the top ten on the list receiving prizes at the end of the week.

You need to bet £5 at odds of 1-2 (1.5) on any bet (single or multiple) on any market of your choice to qualify for this so get working on those high-odds selections.


There are always plenty of football-related promotions on the site. These have included a free bet refund if there’s a goal scored after the 88th minute that scuppers your bet. To qualify you need to stake at least £5 on either Win-draw-Win or Correct Score markets in English Premier League, La Liga or Champions League games. The maximum amount refunded is £25.

Other promotions include a free bet refund on a first/last goal scorer bet in games where there are five or more goals scored.  You could even get a free bet refund if the correct score you predict produces the exact opposite result. Bet on Arsenal to beat Liverpool 2-0 and instead Liverpool win 2-0 then that free bet is yours in what they call a ‘Lawro moment’ if not the tipster of the year award.

American Dream Acca Insurance

With so many American sports events covered on the site, there are plenty of opportunities for all-American accumulators. If you place one that has at least five selections (minimum odds 3/10) on NFL, NBA or NHL games and one lets you down then help is at hand. You’ll receive your stake back as a free bet up to £25.

Cash Out

You don’t have to wait to the final whistle to collect your winnings at 888sport. The Cash Out facility allows you to end your bet when you want to. Selection 1-0 up against the run of play? If you don’t think they’ll hold onto that lead just Cash Out the bet and get some winnings.

Not the easiest of bets and there will be times you make the wrong decision but it’s still a great betting tool.


VIP status at 888sport.com gives you access to exclusive promotions. This ranges from free bets to the chance to win tickets to major sporting events. The VIP Acca Club gives you the chance to receive up to £100 in free bets every week depending on how many accumulators you place. More details on the website.


With so many events to place bets on, not all of them familiar to you, some statistical help is required. Horse racing fans can receive some additional help with their selections with daily tips. You can also see iCards for all the races taking place with lots of useful information.

Just logged in and there are live games in progress? Well you can go to the game and by clicking the stats button that gives you information about who’s dominating possession, how many attacks each side have had and lots more helpful information. Some more stats including current league tables etc  are also available and really helpful.

Also look out for the sports news pages that give their customers lots of information and ideas while you’re working out who to tip in the next big sports event.


There are a number of ways in which you can make deposits and withdrawals to and from 888sport. The important news is that they are all totally secure.

The important tab to use is the ‘Cashier’ one and then select the payment method you want to use for the site. These include Visa debit and credit cards, Maestro, PayPal, Skrill and Neteller.  The minimum deposit is £10.
